Oregon-based author and designer Shannon Quimby recently realized her dream of building an entire house “without a dumpster” — a project she dubbed the “Reuse Everything eXperiment.”
By partnering with several leaders in the green-building movement, Quimby completely deconstructed a crumbling wreck of home in Southeast Portland and reused everything – from old lathe and plaster, to a long defunct water heater – to create a gorgeous new ecologically-friendly home.
You can follow this ambitious home recycling project from start to finish by visiting Quimby’s daily blog.
